  1. Who would think that the bits of foam retreating at the waves’ edge might mimic all the “bits” in a murmuration? I love it. There are such delights at the beach in winter.

  2. Amazing John. At first I thought you were experimenting with a weird special effect 🙂

    Curious to know how much time elapsed between first noticing the murmuration and actually taking the picture, and what other back-story details you might be wiling to share.

    1. Hi Alan, there’s no digital sleight-of-hand here, only a common flock of Sanderlings “working” the shoreline. Typically they can be coaxed to fly 100′ away by a slow approach. I only got two exposures of them in flight and this one was clearly the winner.
